BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN / Wrecking Ball [2012]

After two mediocre studio albums American rocker Bruce Springsteen is back on his game 100% with 2012's Wrecking Ball.
Springsteen's songs are always aware how shitty the world is but he doesn't want us to dwell on it, he wants to inform and push yourself to never let it pull you down with it. We're all in this together whether we like each other or not.
Wrecking Ball marks the final recordings from long-time friend & saxophonist Clarence Clemons, as well as collaborations with Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello. Mixing in a little bit of electronic drums loops, Irish folk rhythms and even a short rap help livening things up and shows that Springsteen respects all genres of music and people.
